Yes, thats true.... Thats why I said its not good if you dont care about details... However, its definitely worth the money for looking at MAJOR systems, rather than individual parts.... If you are a minor DIYer, Id say its a reasonable investment!
Yes it is better then nothing but there's not a lot of info at all in it. I have one for 2 of our other cars and it is a lot better then the Cadillac one. The factory ones usually aren't all that much more on ebay which is why I said to get one of those instead.
It's better than nothing?......It is nothing! If the book gives you the wrong or incomplete info it's WORSE than nothing because it will get you to a point where the car doesn't run and you've got it apart and NOW you can't fix it. Haynes / Chiltons manuals are not even worth $5.00 They're so incomplete that they'll just get you in trouble.
You sort of missed the point.....Here, I'll draw you a little picture. See, Most people that would buy a Haynes/Chiltons manual would not be knowlegable enough to know in advance of starting the repair job that the sorry a$$ed manual that they just wasted their money on was incomplete. That's the little tiny point that you missed. We realize that no one's forcing you to buy one, Just trying to make sure that no one wastes their money on one.
I broke down and bought a Haynes. It has some ok info, however it spans 23 years, not exactly model specific, and extremely vague. I am planning on buying a shop manual on ebay, the starting price is 9.99 + 5 bucks shipping, same price as a Haynes Manual. So anyone thinking about buying a Haynes I'd suggest you wait on it and spend a little extra cash on a decent shop manual.
ps. Ebay rules.
